#Fall4Mushrooms and National Mushroom Month

Brought to you by the One2One Network:

September is Mushroom Month! This month, #Fall4Mushrooms and rediscover all that the amazing funghi has to offer! Fat-free, low-calorie, nutrient-dense, and low in sodium; PLUS they contain natural antioxidants and are the only fresh fresh fruit or vegetable with Vitamin D.
It's no wonder they are considered Nature's Hidden Treasure!

Mushrooms: NutritiousVersatile, & Blendable
Mushrooms are a great way to get more vegetables onto the dinner plate and follow MyPlate guidelines, thanks to their versatility. It’s easy to make half the plate veggies by blending mushrooms and meat n classic dishes, such as burgers, taco, pizza and more.
Mushrooms are low in sodium, plus their umami quality counter balances saltiness so less salt can be used in preparation of a dish.
Mushrooms are grown indoors, so they are always in season and ready to use.
Mushrooms can be an everyday kitchen ingredient to add an extra special touch to foods (chicken, pasta, rice, meat, potatoes); in addition, mushrooms fit into today’s food trends (simple, natural, healthier foods, basic and satisfying).


I'm a big fan of mushrooms and enjoy using them in a variety of meals. I enjoy putting together a vegetable medley of mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, yellow squash and zucchini for a quick side dish. I make a fantastic chicken sandwich with sauteed mushrooms, onions and cheese.. almost like a philly steak and cheese but with chicken. Of course, spaghetti isn't spaghetti without a sauce loaded with mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes... all hot and simmering on the stove top! Nearly everything I fix, I can throw in mushrooms for extra flavor and texture. Matter of fact, just tonight, I enjoyed a mushroom and olive pizza that was wonderful. 

Not only do they taste fantastic but they're really good for you! So, what's your favorite mushroom medley?
